New Fav!

I don't know if it's the weather or what, but I've been a cookin'/bakin' mess lately! For the last two nights I've attempted to make soft, chewy homemade tortillas and each attempt has SUCKED! They've turned out dense, 'unfoldable', and yucky. They smell like tortillas and sorta look like tortillas, but they ain't no tortilla!

After tonights recent failure I decided to do some research and compare other recipes to the one I've been attempting to tweak. I wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for, but I did know that I wanted to avoid using lard (manteca) at all costs. In case y'all didn't know...Lard is what usually makes those bad ass tortillas that make you go belly up at a restaurant before your meal ever hits the table. (Just thought you should know. :) haha)

While perusing the 'net I came across a super-really-cool blog, it's called HomeSickTexan. I don't know about you, but the blog title alone makes me love it! :) She has this post about Texas Flour tortillas that I'm going to try tomorrow. AND IT DOESN'T require shortening or lard! Keep your fingers crossed! I have a good feeling about this one! I'll let you know how it turns out.
